MAB3 is a four-year research project promoting biomass resources
from the sea, namely algae. The overall goal is to contribute to
solving the challenges with food and energy supply and find ways to
exploite the sea instead of farm land.
The project aim is to develop new technologies in laboratory and
pilot scale that will lead to sustainable growth and subsequent
conversion of two brown algae (Saccharina latissima and
Laminaria digitata) into three energy carriers -
bioethanol, biobutanol and biogas - and a high-protein fish feed
supplemented with essential amino acids.
